Life & Style magazine has exclusively learned that the relationship of Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis, 25, and Thomas Ravenel, 54, isn’t headed south anymore.

The on-again-off-again romance, which began during the first season of the Bravo show,has been on the rocks since before son St. Julien was born in November 2015 (joining daughter Kensington, now 2). But now they’re giving it another shot.

“They’re telling friends they’re trying to make it work for the kids,” an insider tells Life & Style. “They’ve been spending more time together, attending dinner parties and filming season four of Southern Charm.”

Working on the show has helped bring Kathryn, the scion of a prominent political family (and direct descendent of Vice President John C. Calhoun!) closer to her politician beau. “Being together so much,” the insider says, “made them see they still had feelings for each other.”
